A hot air balloon made a lucky emergency landing in the middle of a California neighborhood, managing to avoid surrounding structures by a matter of feet.
A photo shared by the department shows the balloon landed mere feet away from a house.
The pilot said he had some help from witnesses on the ground.
"I threw a rope down to them, and they pulled me in," pilot Brian Lynch told KABC-TV. "It was just kind of lucky to have someone on the ground able to help."
